While some think that with today’s technology, a simple internet search will yield the perfect rental, in most situations this is not true. Since there are so many renters and inventory is at an all-time low of seven percent on average nationally and hovers around three or four percent in coastal cities, they need more guidance than ever to find a home. With rental finding assistance, transferees get peace-of-mind knowing they have qualified professionals working for them to find the right rental for their family.
The service itself can come in a variety of ways, depending on what each company deems most important to serving their new hires and transferees. Some examples include:
- Half or Full Day tours with a local expert who has vetted potential properties that fit the transferees’ needs.
- Area tours to show potential new candidates and those being offered new assignments around, provide an overview of neighborhoods and what the city has to offer, to help them with their decision process.
- Destination services for those coming in-bound from overseas and need help settling-in to the United States with regards to banking, getting a social security number, obtaining a driver license and ultimately finding a home.
- Lump Sum policy support which allows the transferee to manage their move, while still having access to valuable resources to make their transition easier.
And perhaps, the best benefit that you may not have considered is employee happiness!
Stress is alleviated for the transferee because a rental assistance firm can save a tremendous amount of leg work and time for them by locating, researching and vetting properties. Once the rental tour is complete the transferee can make an educated decision knowing they found the best options available in the market at that particular time. Also, making sure continued support is a component of the rental finding service is another caveat to insure success. If for whatever reason, the transferee tours and it does not yield a rental, then having someone to help answer the “what’s next?” will certainly provide a level of comfort at a time of uncertainty.
